cfg file and config.bin file syncing - softy783 - 05-22-2019 07:29 PM

i know there are cfg templates but once a phone has been provisioned
can the cfg file be exported from the phone directly and i do not mean the config.bin file.

the issues is some hot fixes are applied via cfg and are never seen in the config .bin file

in addition by customizing a cfg file syncing data from a config.bin file or via web portal
i run into different terminology and having to guess what setting applies to what
ie "a cfg setting refereed to as "automobile" and the same setting is called
in the config.bin file "car"

thanks inadvance

On recent firmware (i.e. anything newer than I believe version 80 or so) the GUI includes an option to export the local CFG settings. These can be exported and used directly as auto provisioning as the formatting and directives all line up.

If you are on an older version of firmware then no, only the .bin files are available there and unfortunately there's no "dictionary translation" between the two that I am aware of.
